So here I sit on the edge of my seat … literally … and I am “listening.”
I’ve had inklings about my niche of “divine inspiration” for a while now. I launched a program in 2009 called “Birth Your Idea.” I was so scared about stepping into it that I did not market it for long. Then months later I had the idea of marketing a program called “Reconnecting to Your Genius” and through inspiration I created even more content.
But I never launched this program because I was too darned fearful. That was two programs guiding people to get in touch with their inspiration and creating and manifesting from that.
So my inspiration was guiding me to coach others how I do what I do this “thing” that I have always called my greatest gift and my biggest nemesis! For over two decades I have been saying this and it took this entire past year to accept it is time to share it with others!
I’ve been creating products … the physical “hold it in your hand” kind of products since the early nineties. I created an ergonomic product in 1992 to raise the computer monitor up to stop neck pain and a series of other products. It was 2003 when I first had the inspiration to write my ergonomics eBook and soon after began creating all kinds of audio products. And now a DVD and spiritual technologies. And art prints and t-shirts and more! It is PLAY for me!
I never really questioned this gift. I kept taking the logical actions to bring them to life when it was appropriate. My biggest challenge over the years was how to handle the CONSTANT flow of ideas to me. It happens time after time … while in the middle of one project the ideas start to flow about another one. So I have learned that I must capture this information as it is coming in otherwise it will just fly away!
At one point over 20 years ago it was so overwhelming to me that I asked the ideas to stop so that I could quiet my mind and they did. I did not know how to harness the energy of these ideas and it drove me nuts! A few years later they all came back and ever since I have been perfecting how I do what I do!
And it is not as if I can always just write the idea down real quick and be done with it. Sometimes it is an entire download and I just allow it to come in. That is how I have learned to honor my gift. It has taken me years and years … well decades … to learn how to discern what to work on.
There is not enough time in the day to take action on every idea that comes in. Many of my ideas are for others whether they have asked me for them or not and I only offer my ideas when I am guided to. So most often I just let it go. I have often joked about requiring a team to literally follow me around to record and organize all my notes and ideas and to take action on them as I have instructed.
When I have teams in place this discernment is even more important so the passion continues and we are productive and getting !
Over the years I have been told that I am always doing something new and exciting. I did not look at it that way. I was just doing my thing. Friends I have not seen in a while would want me to immediately fill them in. Just last year someone I knew over 20 years ago told me that he remembered this about me … and we did not even hang out … he was dating a friend!
That really made me think since I had been pondering the bigger picture for months. When I owned my ergonomic business it was obvious what my niche and purpose was. So that is when I started to take a closer look.
I hired Andrea Hess for a reading since that is one of her specialties. Almost immediately she told me that my niche is divine inspiration. Why was I was not surprised?!! Just I never thought about coaching others how to do this because it is so easy for me.
And that was the challenge all these months!! I kept asking myself “Who would want to hire me?” “Why would someone benefit from my coaching in this area.”
I did not necessarily actually ask these questions but these were the feelings, the sentiments I had. It has been very difficult to wrap my mind around this. As I began sharing with others they would say “You mean you can learn that” or “I wish I was inspired.”
It has taken a lot for me to get this far. It is a lot to step into sharing your gift with the world especially when the world could use a lot of divine inspiration. The fear that I have felt has been intense and at the same time difficult to put my hand on.
I did have the courage to develop a series last year called “Open to Divine Inspiration” and I loved creating it and presenting it.
And now I am so excited to announce that I am leading a 6 month coaching program starting in February called “Living in Divine Inspiration to Consciously Create Your Most Fulfilling Life with Passion, Joy and Ease.”
I chose a 6 month program to give everyone an opportunity to open and create. A lot can change in this amount of time. Just one inspiration and inspired action changes lives. This is how I have lived my life and where major portions of my income have come from in the last 20+ years.
And this can be learned. That is what “Living in Divine Inspiration” is all about. Look for an announcement for the free teleclasses I will be leading beginning next week. If you want to be on the list to attend this free teleclass series then register here –> http://www.wendygyoung.com.
Love and Inspiration!
